Hottest day of the week today, heavy rain Saturday

MAINE, USA — Today looks like a pretty nice day for most once the fog lifts. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s at the coast to the low 90s inland. Humidity remains high, so a couple of showers are expected inland. Otherwise, it will be a drier day.

Humidity sticks around Friday. Some fog is possible again in the morning and clouds will thicken through the day ahead of an approaching system. High temperatures return to the 80s. 

Overcast skies are expected Friday night. Some nocturnal downpours and thunderstorms are on the way for early Saturday morning, before sunrise. The severe risk is situated to our south and west, but we still could see a couple of stronger storms locally.

Saturday looks like another active weather day for Maine. Tropical moisture will get funneled in, allowing for torrential downpours and heavy rain on Saturday morning.

Watch for some stronger thunderstorms mixed in here or there. I think the best chance for severe weather will still be situated across southern New England.

Showers and storms continue on Saturday evening. High temperatures will be limited to the 70s.

Sunday is an improvement, though it’s not going to be a super nice day, either. Highs are going to be back in the mid 80s with lots of humidity. Showers are expected later in the day.

This is the pattern as we get into next week with almost daily shower chances and lots of heat and humidity.

Have a great day.

Mike
